Trainer: Kim Golding, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and certified Practitioner, Consultant and Trainer in DDP.

Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) has been developed by Dan Hughes over the past twenty years as a model of therapy for developmentally traumatized children and their families based on a theoretical understanding of attachment and intersubjective relationships. More recently Dyadic Developmental Practice has been recognized as providing a framework which extends beyond the therapy to also provide network, school and parenting support. Within this seminar the theoretical basis for DDP will be explored and the principles of DDP as both a therapeutic and a parenting approach will be introduced.

About the Trainer: Kim Golding is a Clinical Psychologist now working independently following a long career within the NHS. Kim was involved in the setting up and evaluation of the Integrated Service for Looked After Children, a multi-agency service, providing support for foster, adoptive and residential parents, schools and the range of professionals around children growing up in care or in adoptive families. Kim has been fortunate in this work to have been trained and mentored by Dan Hughes in the use of DDP. Kim is actively developing DDP within the UK.

Kim is author of “Nurturing Attachments: Supporting Children who are Fostered and Adopted”, co-author with Dan Hughes of “Creating Loving Attachments: Parenting with Pace” and lead author of two observational checklists designed for use in educational settings. She has written a group work programme to use with foster carers and adopters “The Nurturing Attachments Training Resource”. Her latest book ‘Using Stories to Build Bridges with Traumatized Children’ was published in July 2014.
